Lewis Cellars Vin Gris Rose Syrah 2018 | When Lewis makes a Rose – It’s gotta be great!
A stunning wine, Lewis Cellars Vin Gris Rose Syrah 2018 captures all the color and aroma of hibiscus blossom, raspberry, and yellow peach. Fragrant, fruitful, and deliciously dry this wine is another win from former race-car driver Randy Lewis. He has barely let his foot off the gas with this full flavor Vin Gris.
“Lewis Style” | Pedal to the metal!
“Lewis’ style is a supersized, pedal-to-the-metal, open-throttle expression of flavor. Those characteristics run throughout the winery’s lineup and this Lewis Cellars Vin Gris Rose Syrah 2018. As a result, few wineries perform as consistently as Lewis.” – Wine Spectator. So, Randy Lewis spent a 23-year career pushing personal and mechanical limits as a race car driver, beginning as a Formula 3 driver in Europe.
That’s where he fell in love with fine wine. He founded Lewis Cellars in 1992. While today he and his winemaker Josh Widaman, formerly of Pahlmeyer, are making the best wines in the history of the estate. In short, these are some of the most popular Napa Valley wines Bounty Hunter offers. They’re unrestrained, voluptuous wines that consistently score in the mid-to-high 90s. The feedback we get from you is enthusiastic across the board.
Proprietors Randy & Debbie Lewis
In 1992 Randy and Debbie Lewis established a small family winery in Napa Valley. And were later joined by their son Dennis in 1999.
So we are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales, and distribution. And we thrive on this challenge and the relationships we cultivate in the process. It is our continuing goal to create world-class wines. Our total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Winemaker Josh Widaman
With a B.S. in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis, Josh brings 15 years of winemaking experience to Lewis, where he is a large and ever-smiling presence.
Josh came to us from Pahlmeyer where he had been the winemaker. While his previous experience includes 4 years as assistant winemaker at Chimney Rock Winery. Plus multiple roles at Stags’ Leap Winery, Gloria Ferrer, and Viña Tarapaca in Chile. When he’s not in vineyards or at the winery Josh enjoys cycling, cooking and drinking wine with family and friends.
